Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by markielincs great comfortable stay
Receptionist at check in seemed slightly off hand and personality bypassed and it took a few seconds for her to realise that same sex couples do share a double bed and we didn't need the sofa bed making up. Nice spacey and airy room. Spotless cleanliness and all facilities within room in good repair. Reasonable nights sleep only slightly spoilt by the loud American lady in adjacent room talking extremely loudly into the early hours.....you can't win them all!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Trek2006 Pretentious
The hotel was pretentious with extensive public areas, but the room was pokey, stuffy and airless and the evening meal was of quite poor quality (although about average for a chain hotel.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by x81b Impossible to sleep
Very small bedrooms, close to each other, very very poor isolation with the adjacent rooms to the point you can hear everything. Doors are forced to violently slam :-(
As I was close to an unrespectfull american citizen 'as all ?), talking over the phone at 5:30am...

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mr O Shame about the rooms
I sat writing a list of Pro's and cons, but to many cons to list. However all little things which could easily be rectified.
However I will list a few.
1, Feather cushions in the rooms, my wife would not have been able to stay there due to allergies, and you cannot open the windows to help vent the area.
2. The carpet in my room was a mess, I was staying in the hotel on business and was very disappointed in the condition of the them.
3, No designated parking for guest, and very expensive, and not informed of such on the website.
4, Website not updated informing of closure of facilities, ie the steam room and pool.
The staff was excellent very helpful and immaculately turned out in uniform.
Breakfast was very well laid out and a vast selection.
The hotel with the faults still allowed for a lovely stay, with very comfortable beds and air-con.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Marco777 Not to crowne plaza standard
I stay in crowne plaza's a lot with work and the standard is very good. However the standard of this is very poor in comparison. Room was very small and uncomfortable, the double bed was more like a single bed and not enough room for two people, check in took 20 minutes. Wouldn't stop here again

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Echelon Comfortable night
Myself and my husband stayed here for a weekend away together without the kids. It's in a good location, we had dinner, went to the cinema and watched ice hockey. All places within walking distance. Staff were friendly. The quality of the breakfast wasn't what I'd expected for the price. But otherwise a really lovely hotel!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Patrick Z Good Experience
Got here for 4 nights when visiting my girlfriend. Nice hotel! As a platinum ambassador, I have been upgraded to executive level with benefits. The lounge is small but good. However the breakfast in the lounge is a little bit too simple. Suggest to put more variety of foods there.
The bed is comfortable but the pillow is a little bit high for me and my girlfriend. The room is comfy despite the size is not so large comparing with other CP. However, as the price is fair, the overal experience here is excellent. Will be here again if visiting Nottingham again!

I stay here quite regularly, I always feel comfortable. A lot of the staff have been here for some time - always a good sign. Great breakfasts, good location and efficient staff. Upgraded as a Platinum member so nice club lounge too!
CP is always my first choice when I'm in Nottingham

The hotel was great, I was just disappointed that I had to pay for the parking; in essence the hotel rate is £12 a night more than advertised.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Awfulmemories Truly awful and upsetting stay
My husband and I stayed at the Crowne Plaza, Nottingham for one
night and were both left incredibly disappointed with the stay from start to finish. We stayed in room 305 and had the worst nights sleep. I am not sure if there was a problem with the heating but every 5 minutes or so it made a huge clanging noise which continued through the night, which resulted in neither of us getting any sleep. There was also a function downstairs so we were subjected to a ridiculous amount of noise during the night too. We were not informed that there was a function on that evening when we checked in, neither were we informed by email that there would be excessive noise throughout our stay.
As I was awake at 2am due to the noise of the heating and the function downstairs, I decided to order room service and was told that it would be charged to the room using the card we paid
with. When the food arrived, we were told that they wanted cash payment. Luckily we had money, but were not happy that we were told incorrect information.
We had breakfast included with the room, so when we went down
for food, we were once again left disappointed - the dining area was dirty, I presume from the night before. There was no apology for the state of the dining area. All the cutlery and crockery was dirty, and although the food tasted OK, when you are eating it off a dirty plate using dirty cutlery, it
leaves a rather sour taste. Not impressed. We checked out early as a result.
All in all we were extremely upset with the below average standards and felt that it ruined our weekend. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone.
I've forwarded my complaint to head office and received a very dismissive email back. I've escalated my complaint and am waiting to hear back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ant67 Great hotel and location
The hotel was idealy located with an easy walk to any city centre attraction, the room was adequate but a little smaller than we would have liked, the breakfast buffet was fantastic.
Will definately stay again on our next trip to Nottingham.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by alternate41 A culture of customer service
I often find that there is one member of staff at a particular hotel that goes out of their way to be friendly and helpful. What I have found with 5 stays at this hotel over the last couple of months is that EVERY member of staff I have interacted with has been friendly and helpful. It makes a big difference to the overall feeling about the hotel.
Rooms are warm and cosy. The hotel is generally quiet at night and it is very handy for the city centre. I haven't eaten in the restaurant but the bar food is fine.
My only criticism is something very minor yet not easily fixed. Why isn't there some kind of facade to cover the ugly hotel parking garage next to the hotel? Other than that I have absolutely no complaints!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Phoe14 room was ok if you live in a care home
We booked two rooms, one was just ok, but the other smelt like a room in an old people's home, disgusting. They were fully booked that night so didn't even bother saying anything about it. It just looked shabby, tired, basic, bathroom finishing touches were very poor, tiling and silicone must of been done by a 5 year-old. The whole experience wasn't good, lots of other little hiccups that lead me to decide we wouldn't be staying there again. We stay quite a lot at the crowne plaza in Birmingham, which is fanatic. All crowne plaza are NOT the same.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Norfolktravellertoooften No air con lets it down
I stay here a lot. The staff are excellent and the hotel is good. BUT the hit con is hit and miss. It is (very) gradually being refreshed, but too often I end up having to change rooms as it is unbearably hot and stuffy.
The beds and bedding are very comfy, but the heat lets the hotel down badly.
Crowne Plaza needs to fix this fast.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JOHNO38 Noisey
we were put on the 7th floor which I thought would be quiet , think we ended up next to either the boiler rooms or air con units as we could hear these going most of the night , so relaxing night ended up being far from it , they give you ear plugs but I cannot sleep with air plugs so couldn't use them. The room was clean though and the staff friendly , wouldn't stay again I'm afraid .

Only stayed for one night, but found the staff very helpful and pleasant. The room was more than adequate for our needs and the breakfast was awesome! Well worth the upgrade at check in.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Johnnytired Swimming pool closed, wafer thin walls and noisy neighbours
On arrival we found out that the pool was closed for refurbishment. We weren't aware of this when we booked and this was one of the major factors in choosing the hotel in the first place so very disappointing. We later found that the walls are extremely thin as we were woken up at 5am by our neighbours who must have just arrived back after a night out and were talking loudly for a couple of hours so little sleep from then on. On the positive side the food was good. We had dinner in the restaurant in the evening and breakfast was excellent. Overall will not be returning.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Rogerdodger Central Location
We visit this Hotel every year , but this year we found the Hotel looking a little worse for wear, the cleanliness of our room left a lot to be desired. There was also a small list of outstanding maintenance and worn out items that could have been exchanged before allocating the room.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ady01 Small Room lousy night club
The hotel is a nightmare to get to, Sat nav's struggle. The room certainly on the small side.
My room on the 5th floor looked out onto a live venue night club, which when banging away at 3am is not conducive to a good nights sleep.
The windows cannot be be opened and the room had a musty smell.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ash7 My stay
This hotel is in the perfect location and is probably the only one in Nottingham town centre with its own carp park all be it at £12 a night The bar area and restaurant have a nice atmosphere and the breakfast was great
That's the good bit Although a platinum member and a higher floor up grade I was right next to the lift and after one night I had to resort to ear plugs to sleep The rooms are tired and I have had rooms with a toilet positioned so your knees are jammed against the wall
The gym is good and pretty new but not maned and I had to turn the TVs on myself to find some entertainment
The last straw was a stolen iPad which I left next to my bed (and not the safe) I reported it to the manager and she was very helpful but since getting home I have heard nothing
I will stay here again due to the convenience but will lock valuables away, take some music to the gym, request a room away from the lift and save up to park !!
